Seagate used to have info on their liquid bearings on their website but it
isn't immediately obvious that it is still there.

For me the advantage of these new drives with the liquid bearings is that they
are now almost silent. For someone who suffers from tinnitus, not having the
high pitched sounds of the older high RPM drives (to which I am very sensitive)
is a godsend.
